Inwood

Peaceful Parks at the Tip of Manhattan
Inwood is located at the northern tip of Manhattan Island and is surrounded by water on 3 sides. Its zoning restrictions on high-rises and the open spaces allow for clear skies and amazing views. The area is becoming more popular due to its affordable prices, peaceful seclusion, and green landscape. Locals love the lush forested parks and the salt marsh for quiet, pastoral strolls. There are now lots of options for foodies, especially Latin American cuisine. Dyckman Street in particular is a hotspot for eating and drinking.

Renters will find low-rise apartment buildings and condos in Inwood. The neighborhood is home to some historic, cultural, and athletic institutions as well, such as the Met Cloisters and Columbia University's Baker Athletics Complex. If you do want to leave the calm and rejoin the bustle of Midtown, multiple train lines are accessible.

Inwood — 7/10 Rating (based on 4 neighborhood reviews)
Pros: Close to Fort Tryon and Inwood Hill Parks, grocery stores, laundry, and the rent is super cheap!

Cons: Longer commute, and if you like to go out a lot, especially in the East Village or Brooklyn, then it's a real pain to get back late at night.
